"A visceral and fantastically intense action/horror story." - Anime News Network

"Japan’s equivalent of The Walking Dead." - io9

I watched the first few episodes on nextflix but it’s not in English so I opted to go with the manga to check it out because the complete series exists instead of just season one. This is my first manga so I don’t really have any prior experience to base it off when it comes to the art or story. I like the art it’s not over complex when it comes to telling the story it seems to work for the gritty horror story. So far the story while is well developed it’s easy to get lost turning the pages.

The eleventh installment is just wow….so much has happened in this volume we’ve learned more about who the Titans who destroyed wall Rose are. They have exposed themselves and when Eren used his titan ability he proved he was no match for the colossal titan or the armored titan and they take off with him and ymir the other titan from the survey corps. Will Mikasa be able to save Eren or will he be a victim of the titans he’s will or those who are looming.

So far the best book in the series, things are starting to unfold with just enough mystery to leave you wanting more. I finished this book really quick in less than 20 minutes while the husband was making dinner. The art isn’t amazing but it’s well done with enough to tell the story but not overwhelming. I admit I wish they had been in color but I’ve gotten used to the black and white of the books. I’ve enjoyed the books so far it’s getting really good I can’t wait to see how it’s going to play out. Typically I’m not a huge fan of horror but with the dystopian feel and zombie like titans it’s perfect. I’m hoping to finish the current ones today and I’m nervous about having to wait for the next one.
